High Quality would like full motion though

ExecDrew, Panasonic
21 January 2013
  • Summary: The only thing missing is you cannot fully adjust the camera which I assumed being a first time buyer and figured spending the extra money buying a high end brand name it would fully tilt and pan but it only does so for 1/3 of the actual camera which is a bit disappointing for the money spent. I am not sure if this is common thing and I bought the wrong one but that is the only thing I would change otherwise it is great.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Convenient
  • Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, wider pan feature!

OK camera - poor panning

Joylene "Joylene", Amazon

  • Summary: Easy setup, POE. Night vision is excellent for in office low light conditions. Easy to install. Pan sucks. Should be able to pan more. The way it mounts, the tilt is always at an angle. Limited view. The software installer needs a bit of work. It picks up dhcp (reservations), but on initial setup drops the address and picks up a new one. You have to use their software to set it up.

When Pan isnt really Pan and Support offers no Support

L. Regedanz "Laddy", Amazon
27 April 2009
  • Summary: The specs for this camera say that it has Pan/Tilt and Zoom. The tilt works good. The zoom is digital vs optical but the low quality digital zoom is expected for a camera in this price range. The Pan does not work UNLESS you are zoomed in, then it Digitally Pans the view. So I guess it could be called Pan but not really. It does make panning ultra quiet though :-) Before I figured this out I emailed Panasonic.

Lot of Hype for the Money

George Charles, Amazon
9 November 2007
  • Summary: First, the camera does look much more professional then the other consumer cameras. The software that comes with it and the ability to save to the SD card are also great... but after a few weeks of use the pan features inexplicably stopped working. The effort to get it repaired/replaced was such that we ended up not even bothering and just repositioned to get the best view from a fixed location.
